1. Do not pour cold water into a hot pan. This can cause the bottom to warp, and it can cause oil/grease
to splatter. Always wash the pans thoroughly in hot, soapy detergent after each use to remove all
traces of food, salt, or grease particles that will burn causing stains when the pan is reheated.
2. Scouring pads and aluminum cleaners are okay for the interior of the pots, but will scratch the exterior.
3. Polished aluminum pots will tarnish and discolor with normal use.
Our motto is: “The uglier the pot, the better it cooks!” Occasional use of "Cream of Tartar" will bring
back some of the luster. However, aluminum pots will tarnish and become dull with normal use.
CARE & USE INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALUMINUM COOKWARE
Empty aluminum pots will melt if placed on cooker over an open flame.
GENERAL MAINTENANCE & STORAGE
Intense heat from the cooker will burn away paint from parts of the frame and windscreen flashing.
This is normal and will cause a slight 'odor' for a few minutes during the initial use. The exposed steel will
rust. Occasional care must be taken to prolong the life of your cooker.
1. Store cooker in a dry place. Do not store outside exposed to weather. Storage of a gas cooker
appliance indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected. If storing cooker indoors, detach
and leave LP cylinder outdoors. LP cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children and
must NOT be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.
2. Occasionally spray paint on affected areas of cooker frame after it has cooled.
3. Spray WD-40 on the burner grid after it has cooled.
4. For long term storage, cover the cast iron burner and regulator hose assembly in a plastic bag.
5. Spiders and small insects have been known to spin webs inside the burner tube. Obstructions in the
burner tube interfere with the flow and mixture of air and gas through the burner. A clogged burner
tube may result in a fire beneath the appliance. If this happens, remove the burner from the frame and
clean the burner tube with a stiff, bent wire. Inspect and clean inside the top burner ports as well.
6. Turn air control shutter to closed position after each use to reduce chance of insect intrusion.
7. Do not tamper with or attempt repairs on the burners, frames, valves, or LP cylinder. Allow only qualified
LP gas dealers to make repairs.
For replacement parts call Barbour International, Inc. at 1-800-864-6194.
8. Always close LP cylinder valve first after use. Always use and store LP cylinder in an upright position.
Never store or transport LP cylinders in occupied enclosures.
9. Check and tighten any loose hardware before each use.
10. Never store cooking liquids in aluminum cooking pots. Salt and seasoning will form pit holes in the
bottom of the pot resulting in cooking oil leaking onto the open burner flame.
Discard any aluminum cooking vessel should cooking oil leak through pit holes. Leaking oil will ignite
and cause a fire.
11. Inspect entire appliance including regulator hose assembly and b
urner assembly before each use.
Replace any damaged or worn parts. Use only parts specified by Barbour International, Inc.
Spray paint and other aerosols contain flammable PETROLEUM DISTILLATES under pressure. Flame from burner or
heat from cooker may cause spray can to burst violently resultin
g in death, serious burns and bodily harm. Perform
all touch up maintenance to cool dry cooker frame and burner, below 115˚F (45˚C).
